Myriota’s Tom Rayner (Business Development Executive), Dr Alex Grant (CEO) and Dr David Haley (CTO) accept the New Business Award at the SA Telstra Business Awards

Global Internet of Things (IoT) business Myriota has won the New Business category at the prestigious 2017 Telstra South Australian Business Awards.

Myriota has deployed cutting edge technology providing ultra low cost IoT connectivity for a wide range of industries including agriculture, transport, utilities, maritime, logistics and defence. Myriota’s platform consists of low cost transmitters that talk to tiny (20cm x 20cm) nano-satellites. The platform is underpinned by advanced software that enables direct to orbit IoT connectivity at a cost base unmatched by any other provider.

Myriota co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Alex Grant, said he was thrilled to receive recognition from a company such as Telstra.

“The Telstra Business Awards have recognised leading Australian businesses for 25 years. To be considered alongside previous finalists and winners is a real honour,” Dr Grant said.

“This award caps an exciting few months for the business. We have deployed solutions into the field and are working with very large clients who have significant demand for global low cost IoT connectivity.”

Myriota co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dr David Haley, said the award was recognition for the company’s commercial achievements.

“Our unique technology has won awards around the globe but this is the first time we have been recognised for turning clever technology into a successful business,” Dr Haley said.

“We’ve assembled a highly capable and experienced team and have rapidly turned Myriota’s technology into a real product that is easy for customers to use.”

Myriota received the Award at a dinner held at Adelaide Oval on Tuesday, July 11 and will fly to Sydney for the national judging of the Telstra Business Awards on Thursday, August 24, culminating in the Telstra Business Awards Dinner on Friday, August 25.
